General

Integrate all kinds of SAP- and BW data in PowerPivot. Xtract PPV gives you access to SAP tables, Queries, BAPIs and RFC as well as BW Cubes and ABAP Reports. The following image shows the Xtract PPV architecture.

Xtract PPV essentially consists of two components: On the one hand Xtract Server, on the other hand you have the Xtract Designer.

Xtract Server is responsible for the actual extraction. PowerPivot communicates with Xtract Server, and which in turn communicates with SAP. You use Xtract Designer to define and configure the extractions.
